G02 Headed to National Championship

The G02 Academy II team earned their place in the 2018 US Youth Soccer National Championship series via the National League over the weekend in Las Vegas. They will be headed to Texas this summer to compete to be National Champs. 

Below is a summary, from the USYS web article, of Sunday's game where the girls sealed their place.

With a late goal, Legends FC 02 Academy (CA-S) earned a 2-1 victory over Albion SC 02 Academy (CA-S) to win the 16U White Division. Near the end of an even first half, Legends grabbed an important lead when Camille Hawley dribbled into the box and fired a low shot inside the right post. Legends tried to put the game away with an abundance of second-half corners, but Albion defended well and pulled even in the 71st minute. Following a scramble in the Legends penalty area, Karlee Kennedy poked a shot into the right corner of the net to level the score. With Cleveland FC holding a commanding lead in the other match, Legends needed to win in order to finish atop the standings. As just a minute remained in regulation, Alison Keller hit a half volley that dipped under the bar to give Legends the all-important three points and White Division title."
